about making urban environments vital. given the present political move, people are open to new ideas. that is true across the country. our burners are being asked to come into centers of various cities for aetna. -- right now. whehowever, as soon as things gt better, they are escorted out. but we might begin to break that cycle. it is just wonderful to walk out on the street and see the world walking by. >> are you giving the twitter deal? >> yes, we are. we just founded a new nonprofit. black rock arts foundation, which is dedicated to spreading interactive, a collaborative art throughout the world. now we have founded but we call the burning and project. -- what we call the burning man project. it eventually leads to the event itself. this is a wonderful opportunity. the thing about burning man, when you look at the variety of people that go there, when you look at this environment, where all the normal boundaries are down in every department of human knowledge and endeavor. if you ask what possible application that we have created that may be useful loud in the desert, -- what wou
environment go in with the right knowledge and the right attitude and you can see the tactical unit at the bottom there and the crisis response civil military operations center that was there to provide the command and control of those tactical units responding on the military side, this provided a perfect environment and opportunity for them to be able to interact with the civilian partners and provide the most appropriate response and understanding. very complex and again i just want to reiterate that the military, we know when we're responding in this type of environment that we're not coming in with the heavy capability and saying don't worry, we're here to help you and take over, we're here to complement and support you with the appropriate ways that you request our needs. the next few slides that i'm going to go over here shows some of the military capability and how some of those responses that we did during this exercise can also be applied at home in a domestic environment such as a response to maybe an earthquake here in san francisco. so the first part up there, you see
past that meander up and down the park under pines and eucalyptus. hang out in this environment and you might see butterflies it, fennel, and then the lines. -- dandelions. is ada accessible. public transit is plentiful. we have conquered the steps, we have watched the dogs, and we have enjoyed a beautiful view. this is a place to take someone special on a romantic stroll and enjoyed a beautiful look out. welcome to corona heights located in the heart of this district. it offers a view of the downtown skyline, the bay bridge, and the east bay. it is one of the best kept secrets in the city. it is hardly ever crowded. on any given day, you will run into a few locals. , bought a 37 bus to get there without any parking worries. for legged friends can run freely. there is also a patch of grass for the small box. >> it is a great place. it is a wonderful place to have these kinds of parks. that dog owners appreciate it. >> take time to notice of the wildfires that are on the grassland and keep your head out on the lookout for hawks and other bird life. be sure to take your camera and be prep
loose in an environment -- people will always give to a greater gift. it is just a principle. if a group get together to give a gift to an entire city, it is easy to find people who will give to that. and the consequence is, you can learn a lot. talk about a networking opportunity. but nobody ever went there to network. they went out there to give their energy, imagination, their heart to something. >> there is that collaboration, the cross-disciplinary thing that happens out there, but i also feel like there is a bit of a sense of competition. people are trying to outdo each other, try to outdo each other trt impressive thing. >> that is human nature. i read a few years ago somebody complaining, i remember the good old days. you could put up a pink flamingo in front of your tent and it was cool. now with all of these big projects, i feel few tile -- futile. well, they learned the wrong lesson. the interesting thing is, people say that they are connected, but in an environment like that, it is easy to get connected. it is easy to get help. unless you insist on being the leader, you will
. a big question. why is all this happening right now? why in an environment where taxes are going up a lot, why are we back to the deals with the likes of which we haven't seen since those lazy and hazy, much lower tax rate of 2005? well, it could be that companies simply have no else where else to put their cash or maybe it is all part of a big bunker mentalit too riy to start something new. so they are just buying out arrival or two in their own business. the deals are back. usually that is good for investors. but before the president takes a bow and since christmas, maybe you should take note that these guys are spending all this money, not as an endorsement, maybe as a defense against it. the real story behind all of this, we have matt schuett. what is going on? >> well, there's a lot of cash out there. not returning anything. borrowing costs are very low. stocks are pretty cheap. we have an environment where growth is slow. it is tough to grow. so you think about doing it in organically rather than organically. people are willing to step out with a little bit more confidence to
to defend this great nation. our soldiers today operate in a most uncertain and unpredictable environment. it is the most dynamic and unpredictable i have seen in my over 36 years of service. unlike post-conflict drawdowns, where we have a termination of conflict due to a police treaty or a political decline of a superpower, instead today we have 81,000 soldiers deployed, including 50,000 fighting in afghanistan, and thousands of others in kuwait, in the horn of africa. over 91,000 soldiers are stationed in over 160 countries. we have been in a continuous state of war in the last 12 years, the longest in our history. but today, in my opinion, the greatest threat to our national security is the fiscal uncertainty resulting from a lack of predictability in the budget cycle, a series of continuing resolutions, a threat of sequestration hanging over our heads, our country's inability to put its fiscal house in order compromise is the full readiness of the joint force, army, and will impact our ability to provide our security to our nation. we have two problems as i sit here today. we have an

to their lower costs. but environment minister nobuteru ishihara has expressed his concern. ishihara says building now thermal power plants or expanding existing ones will push up greenhouse gas emissions. >>> people in beijing are struggling through a cloud of smog. a major cause is automobile emissions and one way to tackle the problem is to introduce electric vehicles. nhk's akihiro has the story. >> reporter: in beijing, the problem of air pollution is growing worse. a major source of the smog is the emissions from vehicles. >> translator: i think cars are responsible for most of the emissions in beijing. >> translator: if environmentally friendly cars catch on, i think the situation will improve. >> reporter: the pollution is prompting people to consider electric vehicles. beijing automotive group is one of china's five biggest automakers. it has ties with foreign companies such as daimler and hyundai. it is now stepping up its output of electric vehicles. this brand can produce 20,000 units a year. it has already sold 50 vehicles to a local taxi company and is setting up battery cha
with the environment and worried about global warming. take a look of april 1975, time cover that says how to survive the coming ice age. there a story there. the science on global warming has been de-bunked time and time again? >> i'm not smart enough. i'm happy i am on the cover of time. i have no idea whether -- and i don't think anybody can scientifically say one way or the other. i think the point is, this oil is going somewhere else. for the environment it's going to hurt the world environment because the chinese are going to do it as much as anybody else. >> eric: i'm going to leave it there. and i'm going to say thank you to the panel for joining us this week. coming up, notice a run-up in your 401-k? lawmakers are looking to get their greedy hands on it. how to protect yourself from those greedy little hands. but that doesn't mean i don't want to make money. i love making money. i try to be smart with my investments. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? ishares. low cost and tax efficient. find out why nine out of ten large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs.
to pass comprehensive legislation, a couple of weeks ago, tony testified in front of the environment and public works committee on why we need to pass and get the safe cosmetics out there on the floor of that senate, he did a fantastic job and i stole this off the video which is archiving, you can watch it, and this act would call for quick action on the chemicals of greatest concern, would increase access to basic health and safety information on chemicals, would use the best science to assess safety, so not old science but new science, would seek to protect vulnerable populations like we talked about way back when, right, prenatally and in pregnancy, those ones that are maybe more vulnerable to chemical exposures and also to reduce exposures in communities with unfair burden of exposures, we know that very often, poor communities, communities of color, communities with less resources are exposed to higher levels of chemicals so we have to reduce that unfair burden because they already have enough unfair burden, so that calls for some comprehensive changes and we want to see those h
for human and environmental health. lead addresses five categories that enhances environment. indoor air quality, energy, water, materials and resources, and sustainable sites are the five categories for the lead. you can go for several gold or platinum certifications. >> the city wanted to be silver lead status. . maybe gold was a stretch. and people said, if we're going to be a sustainable organization that the pucs this has got to be the top of the line. it's got to be a lead platinum building. what does that mean to us? we run water, power, and sewer. so, those are some of the biggest things involved in lead platinum. ♪ ♪ >> by late 2008 the project, as we got the contractor on board and we were able to start pricing it, we're a multi-, multi-, multi-million dollar over budget. >> the story a lot of people don't know after we got select today do this project, the first price we came in with was $180 million. and the city said, you know, this is a great building, but we just don't want to spend that much money. so, the project was on the verge of being canceled. >> if you're looki
the cats that are in this pretty complex environment and trying to get them moving in a common direction. >> general baldwin? >> first, i'm very, very encouraged at the direction the department of defense has taken in changing the way that we do support the civil authorities. and the evolution, the problem that came out of the l.a. riots that were highlighted during hurricane katrina, we had two milltrix out there, the active force and responding. with changes in the law and changes in focus and direction we're starting to fix a lot of that and come together as one joint team to be able to better serve the people here in the state of california and the rest the nation in times of disaster. but there is work that needs to be done. first, we need to find a way that we can share capabilities that are resident within each of our organizations. as the commander of the army national guard you would think i know what forces are available in the army reserve in california. but i don't. i don't even know who their general officers are. i have no visibility on what forces are available at camp pen
housing for them and the critical needed resource and the challenge is the environments they're in and in a sense these folks are retreated to the vehicles for reasons and lack of affordable housing and lack of option and two they don't mention the violence and drug trends, social environments in the trernd loin or the bay view district where board of -- affordable housing is found and my other hypothesis is people most likely to be engaged are the vehicles out of registration or whose licenses had some defect at the time or the vehicles were in poor mechanical condition and out of the four people one person i think has quite a significant mental illness and has a hard time navigating the social ecology of anywhere and one person's vehicle is in that condition. they are uninsured and unregistered at that time and realize they're vulnerable to tow but don't see other options and the others' vehicles are registered but can't afford housing at their current income so we are focusing on those folks and upgrade of employment, obtaining better or more work but it's quite a challen

not been able to refinance in a low-interest rate environment, a missed opportunity. to reach homeowners who are more benefit for a high-interest loan they may hold. we very much support any assistance to reach that population. we have a program that is reaching homeowners whose mortgages happen to be held guaranteed by the g s es, we have seen very good take up in the refinancing assistance for providing underwater loan holders in that population but another group of homeowners to not have mortgage held that the gsts that have not been able to take advantage of this. we think it will be good for homeowners and good for the mortgage market and the economy. >> senator coburn. >> i'm glad to be on this committee. i have one question and i will submit the rest of my question to the record. this is for mr. cordray. mentioned financial literacy that needs to be approved. i wonder if you are aware how many financial literacy programs congress has running right now. >> i can tell you by law the vice chair of financial literacy education commission, we are coordinating with other agencies, 15 or
and i think what you are probably saying is, you know, maybe we should consider very severe environments in case of a disaster which personally i think that's how we train and probably most of your environments. maybe you want to start from a place of more limitations rather than less and one of them is not doing that kind of coordination via cell phone. again, i think this was, last year there was a table top, this is the first time we're actually doing a drill. there's reason for growth and as bijon said, maybe next year we are meshing xhapld and control so command and control is done over the exercise com link and keeping it separate. i think the point is well taken that the recommendation i made, i think we can introduce more rigor into the execution of the com drills next year. >> any other questions? panelists, thank you very much, i appreciate it. let's give them a big round of applause. (applause). >> something that took place yesterday was our medical exchange. rob is going to give you a summary of how that went and at the same time we're going to bring up some additional pane

is not green. it will cause a lot of problems with the environment and they're worried about global warming. look at a cover from april of 1975, time cover that says, how to survive the coming ice age. if you lookdown, there is a story on mash in there. science on global warming has been debunked time and time again, has it not? >> yes it has. but eric, i'm not smart enough to understand it. i'm happy i'm on the cover of time. i have no idea what -- i don't think anybody really can scientifically say definitely one way or the other. but that's not the point. i think the point is this oil is going to go somewhere else. it doesn't matter. so for the environment, it's going to hurt the world environment regardless because the chinese are going to shmutz the world just as much as anybody else. >> we'll leave it there. thank you so sandra smith and julie for joining us this week. >> thanks. >> coming up, notice a runup lately in your 401(k)? now some lawmakers are looking to get their greedy little hands on it. tracy tells you how to protect yourself from those greedy little hands djibouti, afri
. not returning anything. borrowing costs are very ow. stocks are pretty cheap. we have an environment where growth is slow. it is tough to grow. so you think about doing it in organically rather than organically. people are willing to step out with a little bit more confidence to do some of these deals. this is the beginning and we hope to do more. neil: if you are barack oama, you will look at the sensei of wall street has a problem with me, it has a funny way of showing . what do you make of that? >> yes, i am sure. i am plenty convinced that president obama and his team will try to take full credit for this. inflation was not taken into account during neocommunist that i can't help but look at the situation with all these announced mergers and think what it could be that president obama and his team realized that they can't get to their spending nirvana without getting this economy growing. and the economy is hobbling along, even if slow runners can across the finish line. neil: we may be back to levels of the market where we were five years ago. but it has been a steady climb back to wo
with sex drive. but it also has something to do with environment, right? >> well, i think we have to understand that there's got to be a much greater definition of manhood and manliness than just verify i willty. the great guys are the good fathers and ones able to keep their genes in evolution's chain for a long time. and that means learning how to be good dads and head of households. we don't see those role models in our media as much. environment does play a role. for instance, in women, where you would sort of waning sex drive around menopause, you would think, now we have the advent of the cougar. and one study i read was fascinating, said cougars erupt in you're in a permissive environment where there happen to be young men who are interested and then all of a sudden women's sex drive doesn't wane in their late 40s and 50s. if they live in a smaller town, conservative town, where it would be considered a scandal, there are fewer cougars, so environment does play a role, as well. >> i can't believe you said that. actually, i can. it is you, dr. wendy. but, you know, here's th
to implement the goals increasing walking trips and, of course, providing high quality walking environments. 5 percent of san francisco streets bear 55 percent of all our severe pedestrian injuries. most of them are in distinct 6. now in campos's district it is very real. and, of course, one of our supervisors was hit as well. i want this plan implemented. the funding and gaps if there is one and i'd like to hear about the enforcement as well. i also want to submit an memorandum related to my hearingy. this is a woman who was killed on her bible. she was killed by one of our cement trucks. diane was a regular bike valet parker at our giant game and this sunday the san francisco bike coalition will be doing a ride on her behalf. for those who have not heard about this there was a recent article whoa person who witnessed this incident said she was stopped at a traffic light and she was sitting on her bike at the light and the truck driver was there as well. her body was caught in her bike spoke and she bleed out. while they paint a line in the pedestrian crosswalk it does fade. but your wishes a
environment, large dining room and their bar is very separated from the dining room. in fact, i watched the giants win the world series at this location. and you could only see the tv in the bar area, very separate in the back of the area [speaker not understood]. they do a -- really nicely done, establish it southwestern style, different than the other kinds of restaurants on the street. the doors are always shut. they're really respectful. i don't see any sort of crazy activities, at least nice little fire pits outside that are connected the recessed entrance which is quite nice. i think it's been a positive attribute to the neighborhood. so, i would move to approve with conditions. >> second. >> commissioner moore. >> it's actually a positive experience to listen that something works. and i think extending the trial time the way this was done and coming back and not hear one single voice of opposition is kind of inspiring to me, so, i am very supportive of approving this extension, particularly this customer in the corridor anyway, so. >> on that motion, commissioners, to approve wit
in a statewide environment. i think the biggest thing for me, there's several scenarios that are challenging us, one of which and one of our fears, and it's been in the newspaper so it's not a secret, but one of the things that scares me as well is the united states is not really experienced what i would call a global disaster yet. we have had disasters, i was in katrina on an urban search and rescue team, i've been in pretty much all major engagements as far as wild land fires in california, but if you look at a global disaster perspective where you have a hundred thousand victims like a tsunami or a large scale event, we have yet to experience that in this nation. i think the agreements we have here today and the relationships we develop today are going to be key to mitigate that. the other scenario that we are concerned with is a coordinated aerial incendiary attack by al qaeda. one of the things we've seen already in the european union is suspect of al qaeda starting fires in the eu if that happened in california in the right weather conditions, it would be disasterous and everybody in
to helman and nimruz province. very complex dynamic environment that we were operating in but before i begin it talk to you about the operational picture, i just want to give you a snapshot of afghanistan. when we got there i want to set the frame here so you understand what we're dealing with. afghanistan ranged 180th out of 1 86 on the world bank list of developed countries. 20 percent of the babies won't reach their first year of life. there is a 44 year life span for your average citizen. it has a less than 20 percent literacy rate and girls in afghanistan will marry by the time they are 15 and will likely birth their second child by the time they are 20. so this is the long-term effects of violence and civil wars within a failed state by every measure. the marines who are currently still in southwest afghanistan, they are surrounded by very conservative culture. in 2010, this is not true now but narco trafficking and helman province alone was the fourth largest trafficker of heroin in the world. the taliban controlled the region and this is the environment that the marines ca
environment review, consideration of the project along with this project. there is no reason a new environmental review needs to be conducted at this time so on those bases i ask you to deny the request for rehearing. thank you. >> thank you. mr. sanchez. >> thank you. scott sanchez planning department plan. i really don't have much to add except i have been in front of this board for seven years and i find it the best prepared in the city and county of san francisco and prepared for the hearings and ask insightful hearings. during that time the board has consistently applied the policy where there are four members that they will hear the item and if the missing member's vote would have made a change in the decision they would continue themselves so i don't see anything raised tonight was new information that wasn't presented at the previous hearing and i respectively request that the board deny the request. >> thank you. is there any public comment on this item? please step forward. >> my name is dr. terrance faulconer. i am a [inaudible] committee man for the last 39 years

of the very kind of bernal character which is a fine grained small buildings and narrow streets environment. it is very unique in that it is, i think in my view any way, kind of one of a kind. the buildings are very small and the character is fine grained. >> got it. >> very fine grained? >> is that what you said? >> fine grained. yes. >> it was a slightly different reason. >> i might use that on my next marketing statement. >> fine grained. >> the reason is because berno had one of the few supplies of a lot of lots and really small buildings left it became a place where people wanted to develop and they started to develop, three stories over garage flats, huge buildings. >> and then there was a lot of stuff in the beginning and appeals here every week. and planning also, and eventually, there came with this, and which is unique because i had never heard of it before until it showed up at bernal. you know? >> i have a question. on the 1720 to 1750 square-foot calculation, that is interior space? >> yes. it is sort of a generalization, and the formula is a little bit difficult to articulate.
approximately 3 to 5 days of solid training to make sure that they are going to be working in a safe environment to learn what's going on. and most of the time that, the incidents in california will become mitigated. now, not to say that we certainly have that as an option. we have a fairly robust what we call fire crew program using cdcr inmate fire fighters. it is on our radar and it's something that we have as a contingency if we needed to do it. >> lieutenant colonel. >> yes, general, in the mou it does address the ground portion but the focus of effort is mainly on the aviation side but it is built in there for the ground side if necessary. >> i just want to say in 2008 we did activate hand crews to fight fires and we've identified soldiers throughout the state to respond if needed. they've got the tools that they need, the boots and all that cached and available. it's really just a matter of getting the call and being ready to go. >> i was going to end with general myat. i know we've trained soldiers to do that kind of thing. after the colorado fires just recently they did put a lot o
